Platinum and gold are easily the most precious substances that can be found on earth. They are also the most expensive at $1,000 per ounce. However, their popularity grew stronger because of the groundbreaking findings about their cosmic, violent and radioactive origins. Last Monday, the scientists that were awarded the Nobel Prize for the discovery of gravitational waves or ripples in the space’s fabric, announced the very first detection of a collision between 2 neutron stars.
Astronomers were alerted of the event immediately after it happened so that they can point their telescopes directly to the crash site and record their observations of the aftermath in visible light, radio waves, X-rays and gamma rays. The images revealed unfathomable amounts of platinum, gold and silver including iodine that can be found in the human body, uranium that is widely used in nuclear weapons and bismuth in Pepto-Bismol.
According to Brian Metzger, an astrophysicist from Columbia University, calculations suggest that most of the matter that was generated from the event was in a swirling disk around a black hole. At least half of the matter got into the earth while the other half was ejected. The matter that ended up on earth is now being used to produce gold and platinum engagement rings.
People have wondered for very long time where heavy elements come from. The heavy metals cannot just be created from a nuclear fusion in a star. Now, people know that gold and platinum come from countless smash-ups in space.
An ideal alternative to diamond engagement is platinum engagement rings with endearing features that account for its beauty. The demand for platinum is growing because many people have fallen in love with the precious substance. Platinum is guaranteed to exceed all your expectations.
